KinderHorse is a unique program for children ages 4 -5 that combines traditional horsemanship skills with group connection, life skills, and social-emotional learning.

The program is all groundwork based, teaching responsibility, teamwork, communication, and building positive relationships. It provides a safe, educational, and fun environment where children interact with horses through grooming, leading, storytelling, sensory activities, and reflection.
